Review by Anniek
Rosa lives a stabile and nice life with Clement who is a werewolf and Cassandra who is a Witch. Together with Rickard, a werewolf with unusual abilities she is happy at Clement's castle. At least that is what she thinks. Rosa doesn't remember her life before she was taken in by Clement and Cassandra and only knows what they have told her.
When her forgotten love Michael rescues her Rosa doesn't know what to think. They tell her that she had been kidnapped and that everybody has been looking for her. Because of the drug Anise, which she and Rickard have been given on a daily basis, Rosa's memories are hidden. Her body needs to get rid of this drug first and then she might get her memories back.
Michael is very glad that he, his sister-in-law Caroline and their vampire friends have been able to get Rosa back. He loves her very much. His heart breaks every time he looks at her because she doesn't remember the love they once shared. Rickard finds a way to break out of the castle as well when he sees that Rosa has been rescued. He finds them in a hidden cave. Rickard and Rosa are friends who stand by each other and step in whenever the other needs help.
Now that their memories are returning they are trying to find out why Clement and Cassandra needed them. It turns out that Rickard is a new breed of werewolf and Clement wants nothing more than to be like Rickard. Cassandra has always been part of a cruel pack of werewolves and finds gentleness with Rickard.
When Clement is not backing down the stakes are getting higher and higher. Who will stand together and who will fall into the realms of darkness? Will there be a cure for Clement or is he reaching too high?
Stephanie Burkhart's books are new for me. She surprised me with her detailed story. I had no trouble at all picturing the castles and the way of life. I was hoping so much that Rosa and Rickard would get their memories back so that they would know that they were not forgotten and did have a full life before the kidnapping.
The women in this story are just as powerful and needed as the men. I liked that a lot. Everyone has their own strength and holds their own. Sunrise over Brasov is the third book in a series, but can be read as a standalone. Stephanie Burkhart gives you all the information you need. I will definitely follow up on this series.
